Two Penny Blue's Lament is about coming to terms with Death, a theme interpreted by Dan Hawkins as a disconnected relationship between singer Tommy Gathers and a young woman who is a mysterious and seductive presence throughout the video.

At one point we see her wrapped in a shroud – the only indication of the fact they have been tragically separated – and Hawkins uses a variety of simple but nicely shot set-ups like this to express the intensity of their relationship - and keeps the viewer in thrall throughout the five and a half minute song.
